Ankalaev beautifully punished his opponent for acting.

There are only a few days left before the UFC 277 tournament, where two Russian fighters will perform on the main card at once. Of particular interest is the duel of Magomed Ankalaev, who will face the famous Anthony Smith. The Russian goes on a series of eight victories and, in case of new success, will be able to qualify for the title fight. However, Smith urges fans of Magomed not to rush.

“I don’t question his skills in the cage for a second. But I don’t see anything special. His approach is very simple. He doesn’t make mistakes. He never loses ground, but he doesn’t always have to do a lot to make a lot of mistakes. In a fight with guys like Magomed, you just need to make them make mistakes. They talk about him like it’s the second coming of Jesus or he’s going to rip my head off my shoulders and feed it to the crowd,” Smith said.

However, any of Ankalaev’s last rivals could have told Anthony that making the Russians make mistakes is the most difficult task. For example, an American can talk about this with Ion Kutselaba, who managed to fight Magomed twice at once. In the first fight, the Moldavian Hulk staged a circus after a missed blow, feigning a knockout. The referee appreciated Ion’s acting skills – and declared his defeat.

Kutselaba immediately began to quarrel, logically demanding revenge. Ankalaev was also not opposed: he wanted to win in such a way that he would not leave any questions. On October 24, 2020, the fighters met again in the octagon. The Russian really worked “simple”, but that was only external simplicity. In fact, Magomed was constantly breaking Ion, not allowing him to stand even until the end of the first round. The “cannon” on the left literally knocked the Hulk onto the canvas, where he was finished off hard and beautifully.

Let Ankalaev act “simple,” but this style has earned him a fantastic eight-win streak in the UFC. There is a feeling that even an experienced Anthony Smith will not be able to resist the pressure and strength of Magomed. The Dagestani is one of the main contenders for the light heavyweight title. If he adds Smith’s scalp to himself, it will be difficult for Dana White to ignore Ankalaev’s ambitions. We are waiting for the title fight, but first – a victory over Anthony.
